Shiur #1: Understanding a Strange Progression of Parshiyot
Shiur #2: The Internal Structure of the Holiday Torah Reading

Understanding a Strange Progression of Parshiyot
Should Chumash have ended in Parshat Pinchas? Obviously not. Yet, in the middle of this week's Parsha, we find the story of Moshe Rabbeinu's 'death' and the transfer of his leadership to Yehoshua! But that's not all - virtually every parshiya in Parshat Pinchas seems out of place. In this week's shiur, we attempt to understand how and why. Online:

The Internal Structure of the Holiday Torah Reading
You may not have noticed, but on every Jewish holiday (including Rosh Chodesh) the Torah reading - either the entire reading or at least the "maftir" section - is always from Parshat Pinchas! Likewise, we include a quote from Parshat Pinchas in every musaf prayer that we daven. As we will see in our study of chapters 28-29, the reason is very simple. Hopefully, this week's shiur will also enhance your appreciation of "tfilat Musaf." Online:
